Which manager will Ha-Sung Kim (28, San Diego Padres) spend the 2024 season with?
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on Sunday that San Diego has narrowed its search for its next manager to three candidates: club senior advisor Mike Shields, bench coach Ryan Flaherty and Los Angeles Angels infield coach Benji Gill. San Diego has a managerial vacancy following the departure of Bob Melvin to the San Francisco Giants at the end of the season. New York Yankees bench coach Carlos Mendoza was also mentioned as a possible candidate, but he was hired by the New York Mets to manage the team.레모나토토
Of the final three candidates, Sylt is the most eye-catching. Sylt was the manager of the St. Louis Cardinals from 2018 to 2021, compiling a .559 winning percentage (252-199). In 2019, he was named National League (NL) Manager of the Year. Flaherty retired in 2019 after eight years in the MLB and has been coaching in San Diego since 2020. According to MLB.com, “Gill won four championships as a manager in the Mexican Pacific League. He also served as manager of the Mexican National Team at the 2020 Summer Olympics and the 2023 World Baseball Classic.
San Diego is also expected to move quickly to hire a manager. Earlier in the day, the Chicago Cubs hired former Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell as their new manager. The Cleveland Indians hired Stephen Vogt and the Mets named Mendoza as their new manager, with each team quickly finalizing the process.
